gingrich, this is really about the economy. new jobs numbers came out on friday. are they a game changer in terms of how people perceive the economy? this is "the washington post" front page. certainly not something that the romney team wanted to see. the line graph showing 7.8% unemployment when obama takes office in january 2009. here we are in september of 2012. lowest since he took office. does this change anything? >> sure. i think it was a significant help to the president. imagine it came out at 8.2 following that debate. people would have entered this weekend saying that's close to the end. so i think it's part of the whole process. this campaign will go down to the end, i think. it's going to be one of the most interesting campaigns in american history. and i think you're going to see it go back and forth some over the next week. on the other hand, friday, the international monetary fund said probably no recovery until 2018. and that's a very sobering number. >> robert gibbs, it is particularly weak. you have 40% of those who have been out of work, out of work for six months or
what it means, but here are today's numbers, the economy gained about 114,000 jobs in the last month, pushing the unemployment rate to 7.8%, that is where today's political debate in this country started out. we have it all covered here tonight. and we'll begin our coverage with nbc's andrea mitchell, good evening, andrea. >> reporter: good evening, brian, in a week that has been a roller coaster for both of the candidates, today's news gave a good bit of a jolt, but that set off a firestorm on what it really means. the news that the unemployment dipped below 8% since he took office came just in time for a president battered by his poor performance in the debate. >> today's news should give us some encouragement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy, just to try to score a few political points. >> reporter: not surprisingly, mitt romney saw it differently. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. >> reporter: romney argued today's numbers disguised the fact that people had stopped trying to even find jobs. >> so it looks

the president at this point or is the economy baked into this election? >> both things are probably true. the point that you made about the lowest level since he took office, that's important. we're already seeing in polling are more optimism among voters about the economy. that all is to the president's benefit but a very weak rae covery. 114,000 jobs is not very robust at all. you still have a very high percentage of those who have been out of work for six months or more so the economy is still really hurt iing. the question is whether anything that happens on the economy now is enough to move people's feelings significantly when you're down to a point of a much smaller pool of voters who will change their minds at this point. >> what do you have coming up on "meet the press" this morning? >> we have a special panel including newt gingrich and robert gibbs. also, what you haven't heard from arnold schwarzenegger this week about his personal failings and the race for the white house. >> david gregory, thank you very much. >>> up next on "today," is bigger better when it comes to people

opponents using the economy as a political weapon. mitt romney for his part at another separate rally in virginia said don't be deceived by these numbers. they don't reflect the number of people who actually have quit the work force and have given up looking for work. in reality, that number has gone down, too. the so called real unemployment rate now at 14.7%. one more thing. mitt romney in a conservative television interview went and disavowed that infamous comment that he made that has cost him so much politically, that 47% of americans he called victims, said they would never vote for him. he said he was flat-out wrong to make that comment. >> mike, thank you. we asked joe scarborough from "morning joe" to take a look back at the week that was in politics. something we're going to call our "weekend mojo." >> so, joe, it was an important week. the presidential election, the unemployment rate came out yesterday at 7.8%. that seems to be -- appeared to be good news for the president. >> there's a big economic debate on exactly what it means. we debated it this week when the number ca
